Weakless forces its way to a November release date

We get to see a lot of indie games at Enthusiast Towers. Unfortunately, this does mean that we sometimes get a little jaded when it comes to pixel art, 2D games, and other basic visual styles. This means that when we see something that doesn’t really look like an indie game, we pay a little more attention. This is why we were intrigued by Weakless. Polish developer, Punk Notion is behind this one and it looks like they’ve done a top-notch job. The lighting and animation really do look a cut above the rest of most indie games. Weakless is a 3D puzzle adventure game where you play as a Weavling. These carefree wooden creatures are trying to find their way home through a world suffering from Rot. And we now know that the game will launch on 29th November.

The announcement was made via a trailer which you can check out below along with the official description of the game –

Weakless is an artistic, 3D puzzle-adventure game with stunning organic environments filled with curious life-forms and a bioluminescent glow. Take control of two unusual Weavelings – carefree, wooden creatures – and aid them in their unplanned journey.
But the task won’t be easy; one of your characters is deaf, and the other is blind. Help them save their world from the advancing Rot and find their way back home.
Follow the story of an unlikely friendship that develops wordlessly between the stoic Blind and the energetic Deaf.
Peek into Deaf’s sketchbook and gain unique insights into what he thinks about the whole ordeal.
Enter the beautiful, organic, bioluminescent world of the Weavelings, filled with curious life-forms and mysteries of a bygone civilization waiting to be uncovered.
Get a glimpse of the artistic way that visually-impaired and hearing-impaired people perceive the world.
Join a meaningful narrative with satisfying exploration and enriched by arcade puzzle elements.
Experience stunning music composed of instruments from all around the world, such as the marimba, RAV vast, and udu.
